116353 System and Method Associated with Cellular * Telecommunications

System och förfarande som Hänför sig account cellulär communications * tion

Background

The present invention relates to a system and method for providing cellular mobility in a telecommunications system comprising a single hub, e.g., a Private Branch Exchange or a Private Telecommunication Network Exchange or a Private Network having multiple hubs.

The invention further relates to a system for providing a cellular mobile station with access to the exchange, and in particular to the services provided by the exchange, in substantially the same way as a cordless telephone enters the radio coverage area of the exchange. The invention also relates to a mobile telecommunication system comprising a cellular telecommunication system and a private network in which cellular access is provided to a private network and the services provided by it.

• · # In this known system, a user of a cordless telephone located in the radio coverage area of the radio center, which is an accessory for the exchange, can use the services provided by the exchange. However, if the user is not located in a private area; In the radio coverage area of the switchboard radio switchboard accessory, a cellular telephone must be used. However, it is not possible for a cellular telephone C to use other services provided by the exchange than those associated with a conventional analog telephone or a so-called POTS (plain old telephone service) in a public mobile network.

116353 2

Attempts have been made in the past to provide access to both cellular and private networks in a number of ways, and attempts have been made to interconnect these networks. By using connected telephones, i.e. cellular telephones and cordless telephones together using dual transmitters, antennas, etc., it is possible to switch between a cellular network and a private network. In other systems, the user must have two different phones, one for the cellular network and one for the private network. Neither system provides cellular access to a private network or services provided by a PBX or private network. The combined phone shown above is a very complex device and does not have cellular access to the services provided by the private network.

Another system disclosed in EP-A-462 727 discloses a mobile communication network comprising a PCN network and a private automatic branch exchange (PABX) connected thereto. Calls involving a mobile subscriber belonging to the PABX are routed through a base station controller that includes a mobile switching center function on the PCN network. · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · ' This requires PABX to have certain protocols, which means that it is not possible to use the control panel as such, but it has to be modified.

A: It is still not possible to access all the services offered by a private regional center or private network in this way, eg the same telephone number cannot be used, but an additional numbering plan must be used for this particular; for a user group.

Also, with this known system, it is not possible for the cellular telephone to have access to all the services provided by the PBX or the private network, and in particular it is not possible to use the same numbering plan regardless of the usage. . whether cellphone or cordless phone.

Summary

It is an object of the present invention to provide an arrangement whereby a cellular telephone provides access to a exchange or a private network. In this application, the exchange may be connected, for example, to a Private Telecommunications Network Exchange (PTNX). The European Telecommunications Standard Institute (ETSI) defines this as: "PTN, a node entity in a public telecommunications network that provides automatic switching and call handling functions used to establish telecommunications services. A node entity that performs one or more nodes. the functions set out above may be achieved by means of equipment which is located on the premises of the private network operator or which is co - located or physically forming part of the private network. Two forms of PTNX are: PBX, a form of corporate telecommunications network center located at the premises of a private network operator. Centrex, a form of business telecommunication network hub, not located on the premises of a private network operator. The invention will now be described mainly with reference to

«T I

PBX, but it can connect in the same way with Centrex or V. · eg any type of PTNX as well as any other • - · appropriate switching center. The PBX also includes the Private Automatic Branch Exchan- • »· * ·., Ge. Thus, although this publication refers to a PBX, the above invention is not limited thereto, but also includes other exchanges. In particular, it is an object of the invention. providing an arrangement whereby a cellular telephone user obtains access to the services provided by the exchange or the private network. It is also an object of the present invention to provide an arrangement and method respectively for providing a cellular telephone user with rapid access to a private network or e.g. a switch and for accessing a PBX by a cellular telephone user. . (PTNX) and extended services provided by the private network. It is a further object of the invention to provide a system that is easy to use and has good security.

It is also an object of the present invention to provide a telecommunication system comprising a cellular network and a private network in which the cellular telephone easily obtains access to the private network and in particular the services provided by the private network and wherein the cellular telephone user obtains access to the private network that the (private regional) center itself is subject to requirements.

It is also an object of the present invention to provide access to a mobile cellular telephone by an internal private area center party or an external party through a private area center.

These and other objects are achieved by connecting the mobile server equipment in connection with the exchange and by connecting the cellular system to the mobile communication means directly or through a exchange, e.g. a PBX.

In particular, the exchange and the mobile server server means may be interconnected using two interfaces, the first of which: * ·,! it is intended for access to a cellular cellular telephone • or #, and one is intended for making calls to users or users of a personal number.

• · *

A personal number is an extension number in, for example, a PBX that is. . given to a mobile cellular phone user. The cellular system is coupled to the exchange via an interface using DTMF (Dual Tone Multiple Frequencies).

Applicant's co-pending U.S. Patent Application "System and Method Related to Cordless Communication", filed December 30, 1994, concerns wireless telephone access to a PBX (PTNX) or a private network, and an arrangement for wireless mobile communication, and incorporated herein by reference.

The mobile server means are then interposed between the exchange and the plurality of radio centers, connecting the exchange using an existing interface from the exchange, and the mobile server means can be said to emulate the radio center in cooperation with the exchange. Since the exchange of the exchange is unchanged, the programs or devices of the exchange do not need to be modified for the mobile server tools (or the mobile communication server (MOBS)).

In accordance with the present invention, a cellular cellular telephone generally appears as an exchange of an exchange, which means that if a mobile cellular telephone user makes a call in a private numbering scheme of a private network, connection to a (private area) exchange is performed automatically. '·· tomato. Hereby, calls from a cellular mobile communication network are provided to private network extension services, and calls to personal extensions can be provided with cellular access.

; An advantage of the present invention is that the cellular telephone can easily access the services provided by the private network, without any other requirements for the exchange, and that it provides quick access to the private area center. Another advantage of the present invention is that the same PBX extension number can be used regardless of whether wireless is used. . phone or cellular phone. Other advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following detailed description of the invention.

Detailed description

Figure 1 illustrates a first embodiment of the invention having a cellular network (e.g., GSM, ADC, (D-) AMPS, etc.) to which a private area PBX is connected. The PBX is connected to the cellular network switching center of the cellular network (not shown in the figures) via a dedicated trunk route which * supports Dual Tone Multiple Frequency (DTMF) protocol when transmitting A * numbers (calling numbers). party iD). Interface 116353 7 In the embodiment shown, the PBX and the mobile switching center of the cellular network have a PCM / CAS interface using DTMF number transmission. PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is a commonly used transmission technology worldwide. The ITU (formerly CCITT) has issued several recommendations for this technology. Common Channel Signaling (CAS) indicates that network channels share a single communication channel for line communication information. The CCITT recommendations in series G.700 - G.795 provide general views on digital broadcasting systems. In particular, the following CCITT Recommendations apply to PCM and CAS as applied to the disclosed application: G.703 "Physical / electrical characteristics of hierarchical digital interfaces", G.704 "Synchronous frame structures used at primary and secondary hierarchical levels", G .711 Pulse Code Modulation of Voice Frequencies, G.731 Characteristics of Primary PCM Multiplex Equipment Operating at 2.048 Mbps, G.733 Characteristics of Primary PCM Multiplex Equipment operating at 1.544 Mbps "and Q.512" Exchange interfaces for Subscriber access ". The PBX may also be connected, for example, to the extension numbers of the Line Interface «· · ••• I, the operators, the public switched telephone network PSTN, and it may also include connections that provide, for example: 1st: tys, service, etc.

The private area center may e.g. be MD110 (manufactured by Ericsson), and in various embodiments the switching interface may be e.g. >.> la the main connection protocol provided by Telia P7, which requires in-band DTMF after answering, or P81, which; 1 includes direct dialing with A-number transmission. These are, of course, only examples of protocols that are relevant to the European GSM market and correspond to i ([<: signal protocols already existing in other markets) and other protocols related to other systems I 1 »1 etc. Thus, of course, several other protocols may also be used 1166. Communication cases relevant to the two main connection protocols mentioned above will be described later with reference to Figures 5 and 6.

The PBX is further connected to a MOBS (mobility server), which in turn may be connected to a plurality of wireless radio exchanges REX, only one of which is disclosed herein for purposes of clarity. The radio exchange REX is connected to the mobile communication server via the MOBS ISDN S2 interface, which supports mobile communication management. The MOBS is then connected to the PBX in an existing interface between the PBX and the REX, which may e.g. be ISDN S2, PCM / CAS or an analog extension. However, it is irrelevant for the present invention whether or not radio centers (REXs) are present. As for ISDN S2, the S reference point is fitted to PBX systems as an access interface for extension lines. S2 is a 2 Mbps primary connection (30B + D). Similarly, S 1 is a 1.5 Mbps primary rate connection (23B + D) used primarily in the US. The primary rate interface and its D-channel control communication allow traffic to be concentrated, meaning that more than 30 or 23 users can be allocated to one interface (S2V, · or S1_ respectively). In this particular case it is PCM / CAS

: '·· using DTMF messaging. Because the existing interface! / · PBX is used, the PBX does not need to be replaced, which means: no modifications to the PBX program or PBX hardware, and when working with the PBX, MOBS emulates the radio control panel. The PCM / CAS interface (the second interface;......) Is used for calls to or from a person-to-person number. For example, an ISDN Sg or analogue extension number can be used from within the PCM / CAS.

· · ·! However, MOBS is also connected to the PBX through a first interface that provides access to mobile cellular users or users. In this case, it is the ISDN Q-SIG interface.

. ·. : Q-SIG is an ISDN network protocol provided for private networks defined by ETSI. The following ETSI standards apply to 116353 9 base calls and form the basis for complementary services: ETS 300 170, "Layer 3 protocol for signaling", ETS 300 172, "Data link layer protocol for Q-point signaling between two private telecommunications networks Exchanges". between Exchanges of Private Telecommunication Networks for Control of Circuit Switched Calls, ETS 300 329, Generic Functional Protocol for Support of Supplementary Services. The following proposed ETSI standards apply to wireless mobile communication in private networks: QSIG-CTAU, "Cordless terminal authentication", QSIG-CTLR, "Cordless terminal location registration", QSIG-CTMI, "Incoming CTM call handling", QSIG-CTMO, "Outgoing CTM call" handling ". Applicant's U.S. Patent Application "Arrangement and Method Related to Cordless Communications", which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety. a plurality of private networks including a plurality of private area centers connected to mobile servers interconnected so as to form an overhead network of mobile servers providing transparent access signaling between them and cordless telephones to a PBX, etc. The present invention relates to of course, also private networks of any type * · X ί with mobile servers connected. although not explicitly shown in any of the application figures; the principle of establishing cellular access to a PBX is the same whether it concerns a single PBX, * s · connected to a mobile server, or is, which multiple PBXs are configured to form a network “| · Either with the help of the above network, which is composed of '·· * mobile servers, or whether there are separate PBXs where · * multiple mobile servers are connected together to form a network.

'* FIG. 2 relates to a first embodiment for arranging a mobile telephone to obtain access to a PBX. The corporate 116353 10 network includes a private numbering plan. When a cellular telephone user makes a call in a private numbering plan, the cellular network connects to the main access route to the PBX and transmits an A number. Examples of connections are shown in connection with Figure 1. The PBX makes a transit call to the MOBS for an incoming call on the main access route over the ISDN Q-SIG's on-line route, and transmits the A number it received from the cellular network. MOBS then analyzes the dialed number in the PBX and establishes that the call is of the type that it should be routed to the PBX and should be treated as a call from a personal number associated with the received A-number. In connection with other embodiments, the A number received from the PBX is converted or not in the MOBS before the MOBS calls the PBX. Thus, it may be a call from a personal number that is the same as a local A-number, or it may be a call from a reverse A-number.

According to a preferred embodiment, the PIN is transmitted by the cellular network, which is checked by the mobile communication server. This provides good security and is needed e.g.

r I · P7 for the main connection protocol, which is described in more detail in V ,; below, because the A number is part of the keypad sequence. Additional: Numbers (B-number entered by the cellular telephone user) are sent from: * *, entered into the PBX. If no additional number is received, • · j *. (J The PBX ringtone is connected through the cellular network.

• · »*» »* · ·

According to another embodiment of the present invention which. . shown schematically in Fig. 3, the cellular network is connected t * <»· * directly to the M0BS instead of being connected to the M0BS via an unpaired PBX. Thus, if a cellular telephone: * user dials in a private numbering plan, the cellular network will »connect to the main access route to the M0BS and access it. send the A number. MOBS investigates the number being dialed and determines that it "wants" to route the call to the PBX and should treat it as a "personal" number 116353 11 as the received A number. As in the previous embodiment, the received A-number can be converted or left unmodified by the mobile server before calling the PBX.

In both of the above embodiments, when a cellular telephone user calls in a private numbering plan, he or she is automatically connected to a PBX, and the cellular telephone serves as a PBX extension number. Because the cellular telephone looks like a PBX extension, it has a representation in the PBX that consists of a directory number, service class, multiple features and liner, etc. The PBX provides the same functionality to a cellular telephone user as a radio accessory within the PBX. . The cellular user then has access to all the services provided by the PBX, of which only a few are mentioned, such as services initiated by an extension number, such as call, transfer, branching, busy line services for incoming calls, such as callback, etc. private network services, such as finding the cheapest route <*, etc., can also be provided to a cellular telephone user, such as a roaming wireless user, as in the case of a wireless user * · · / ·· PBX radio accessory | under the center radio coverage.

Figure 4 illustrates a call to a mobile cellular telephone, e.g., a GSM laptop. The personal number can, · *, be dialed from an internal party of the PBX, e.g., from a desk phone, operator or other personal number, or from an external party, via a PBX, e.g., from a PSTN 1 * * or from a cellular telephone. The figure shows the internal division of labor between the systems. The PBX calls the mobile server using the ·,: PCM channel assigned to this personal * * »number and thus the mobile server can identify the 11635312 dialed number (step 1). Two different phones can be associated with a personal number: A cellular telephone in a GSM network (in this embodiment) and a cordless telephone. The mobile communication server routes, based on the personal profile of the personal number and the status of the telephones (available or not), the call to the cellular telephone or the cordless telephone (steps 2a and 2b respectively in Figure 4). To route a call to a cellular phone:

Step 2a, indicated by the arrow 2a: general personal number is converted into solukkonumeroksi the mobility server and additional access codes may also be added to the mobility server for the required routing to the PBX via. The call is then routed to the PBX over the ISDN Q-SIG interface.

Referring now to Figure 5, the first \ '·. a signaling case for the first main access protocol manufactured by Telia, which requires additional in-band DTMF after the response, P7 protocol. In the signal diagrams of Figures 5 and 6, the signal arrows represent lines ···, and signals or ISDN D-channel messages, except for the bold '1' and arrows representing DTMF numbers or tones of the audio band.

5, the P7 protocol is an example of a simple, ·,; line communication protocol used by Telia. Telia is a Swedish operator with both PSTN 116353 13 and wireless (cellular) networks. The protocol is adapted over PCM / CAS between the mobile switching center and the PBX. In this case, two line signals are used to initiate a call from the mobile switching center to the PBX: Seizure and Answer. The line signals use the CAS signal bits a and b. Address information is transmitted by DTMF tones in the voice band between the mobile switching center and the PBX. Address information comprises: A-number, a calling party identifier. The user did not enter this information, it is transmitted after identification of the calling party by the network.

B-number. This is by keying in the calling party address. Alternatively, according to a preferred embodiment, the PIN (Personal Identification Number) may be transmitted by the network to improve the level of network security.

When the PBX receives the charge signal from the cellular network, the PBX calls the mobile server through the ISDN Q-SIG interface. The mat ·; · mobile messaging server then initializes the voice connection to the DTMFs * · voice receiver and instructs the PBX to switch to speech mode: '·· by sending a switching signal. The PBX amplifies the switch signal- / ··· by restoring the switch gain and the PBX switches the PBX to the mobile server and also sends a response signal.

Iin via CAS to the mobile switching center. The mobile switching center, in turn, switches over and then transmits; ·. address information by DTMF tones to the mobile server.

<«» »» · T

The mobile server analyzes the received A-number and may also check the PIN. The A number is translated on the mobile server into a personal number, which in turn is associated with a PCM time slot on the extension access line. . PBX. The mobile server then calls the PBX using the access line and the selected time interval. A call from a PBX to a PBX is handled as a standard call from a PBX extension, i.e. a DTMF voice receiver is connected, and a dial tone is sent to the mobile server in the time slot. When the mobility server detects access PBXrltä dial tone on the line, the B-party number is sent to the DTMF digits to the PBX on the same access line.

The mobile server then switches the call so that the calling party (cellular phone user) is then transparently connected to the PBX and receives in-band propagation tones, such as a ring tone or busy tone, as any PBX extension would do. Callback procedures are now possible using end-to-end DTMF if supported by the GSM mobile station, e.g., a parallel call request or a call waiting if the called party is busy.
